What Gives You Hope?
“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. Psalm 39:7
We live in a hopeless world full of turmoil, violence, greed, among other things. So what gives you hope in this world? Regardless what your faith or beliefs are, everyone has to come to the conclusion that we all face the greatest enemy, which is death. So what is your solution for death? How are you preparing yourself for the future?
Eventually we all need to come to the conclusion that we need a savior, and that savior is Jesus Christ. But to truly understand why we need a savior , we must first understand why there is death. Whether you believe it or not we are all descendants of Adam (Genesis 5:3) , and have inherited his death due to the penalty of sin . Because the wages of sin equal death. (Romans 6:23)
But of God is a merciful God and has sent his only begotten Son, Jesus, to take the penalty for our sin, so we may live forever.(John 3:16) So because of Jesus we have hope, because he has conquered death and sin. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
So I ask again, what gives you hope? What brings you reassurance that you will live forever? There is one assurance and its Jesus Christ, the only way to eternal life. (John 14:6) Don’t squander your life in false hope, why not put your faith in the God that created you to be his child. (Romans 8:15)
Who is eligible to receive Jesus as there Lord and Savior? Everyone, God has said Anyone who calls upon Jesus shall be saved. Are you saved today? Would you like the hope of Jesus Christ? If you ready say this prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please forgive me for my sins, I confess Jesus is my Lord and Savior
Please pour your Holy Spirit upon me in Jesus Name Amen
